Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber grabbed Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings by the back of the head and slammed him into the glass during the final moments of Wednesday's game. The All-Star defenseman, who owns a five-inch and 37-pound advantage on Zetterberg, received a roughing penalty during the Predators' 3-2 win in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series. As for any additional punishment from the league, Weber didn't seem too worried - although commissioner Gary Bettman was in attendance. "He hit me from behind, so we'll see," Weber said. "Zetterberg hit him in the head first," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "There wasn't much there. I mean, I was watching the scrum right after that with (Detroit's Todd) Bertuzzi and (Paul) Gaustad and Bertuzzi comes in with a big-time, you know, haymaker, so I just think Zetterberg was tired at the end and he knew Webs was there and the game was over."
